While we are still in the throes of this dreaded Coronavirus Pandemic, there are some events being scheduled which I guess is a good thing since it reminds us of what “normal” is like once again. Earlier I received a piece of press copy about a cool art show featuring the work of Charlie Benante (Anthrax) and Carla Harvey (Butcher Babies). It was only a poster but it gets to the point. Take a look.
The Hollywood Undead will bring their brand of Rap Rock to life with support from Butcher Babies and more.
You’ll have to pardon the late announcement about this tour but with so many reports hitting the Metal Media Command HQ from the recent Comic Con International: San Diego, there is only so much that we can get to in a single day. That said please check out the recently announced tour for their album “Five” by the Hollywood Undead.
The Press Release:
“We’re five brothers, and this is our fifth record,” singer Johnny 3 Tears said about their upcoming studio effort. “Nothing gets to the essence of the music like this number does. Numerology has a lot of power. When we said Five, it just made sense. The fact that we could all agree on one word codifies who we are. It also nods back to ‘No. 5’ from our first album, because it was our fifth song. Moreover, it hints at this secret society of fans supporting us for the past decade. The number is significant, and this is a significant moment for us.”
Tickets for select shows on their upcoming fall tour will be going on sale starting this Friday, July 28, and can be purchased by clicking here.

Hey there my dear readers, so it wasn’t too long ago that I was discussing the Megadeth tour with you right here on the website and since that time a few things have happened. The first and rather surprising news was that the band Havok was removed from the tour based on differences with the contract about the run of dates. That sucks since I feel Havok is one of the more exciting of the up and coming bands that is out there. The new news is that Butcher Babies is joining onto the tour so if you are a fan of the band this should make you a happy camper and if you’re not…….well. The press details about this are below so dig in. I’ll be back after it all.
The Press Release:
BUTCHER BABIES have announced that they will be hitting the road with the legendary Megadeth this Fall as part of the band’s Dystopia tour in North America. Also joining them will be Amon Amarth, Suicidal Tendencies, and Metal Church. The month long tour starts in Casper, WY on September 20 and concludes on October 16 in Camden, NJ. In addition to the tour, both Butcher Babies and Megadeth will be performing at this year’s “Ozzfest Meets Knotfest” event, which takes place on September 24 & 25 in San Bernardino, CA
Speak about their enthusiasm for the upcoming tour, Butcher Babies vocalist Heidi Shepherd states, “We’re incredibly honored to join forces with some of our idols, legendary musicians and bands! Megadeth is a staple in metal music and we can’t think of a better way to round out our 2016 touring schedule than with these metal gods. Who didn’t grow up with a Megadeth poster glued to your wall with dreams of dreams of sharing the stage with them. Bucket list… Check!”
